Need your help

Lord God, so many people in so many situations need your help.

  • Those who often travel, for safety.
  • Those who work in dangerous jobs or circumstances, for security.
  • Those who suffer from disasters like hurricanes or earthquakes, for basic needs of shelter, food, and water.
  • Those who must fend off oppressive thoughts and dark moods, for peace.
  • Those who serve the public, for patience.
  • Those who are employed in government or are elected to their position or have assumed power in some way, for justice.
  • Those who often deal with the poor, the oppressed, or the excluded from society, for compassion.
  • Those who are lonely, forgotten, or needy, for companionship.
  • Those who struggle with addictions or are trapped in abusive relationships, for freedom.
  • Those whose worth is tied to possessions and those who love money, for wholeness.
  • Those who have no hope or who rest upon false expectations, for faith.
  • Those who seek pleasure in this world or have seen its true end, for joy.
  • Those who serve you in the gospel, for perseverance.

You are the God who can supply every need and offer every help. Rise up, O Lord, and let us all rejoice in your active goodness.

Work from curse to blessing

Lord, thank you for giving us work which provides for physical needs, gives us meaningful activity, and allows us to glorify you by our word and example.

  • Help us to see more than a job, but a place to shine our light.
  • Help us to give our best as we work not for man but for you.
  • Help us to see the person behind the coworker, the client, the supplier, the supervisor, the customer, and the staff.
  • Help us to show respect to all, to submit to authority, and to demonstrate professionalism and honesty in all our dealings.
  • Help us to be on time, to keep our word, and to be trustworthy.

Thank you, heavenly Father, for making the curse of the sweat of the brow into a channel of blessing of salvation in Christ.

The one request I know you’ll answer

Lord, so much I have to ask of you! So much I want to see happen in my life and in the lives of others! So many needs that I think I have!

There is one request, out of them all, that I know you will answer positively. I confess to not knowing what will be best for me and mine. I cannot foresee the effects of what I ask. So I pray, Your will be done.

I pray this because I know that you will do what is best for us all. You seek to bless. You want to draw us near to you. So whatever I am asking, I pray that you will do everything according to your will.

And in your will I rest and find peace.

Love Me

Save me, Lord, for I am weak,
Love me with your love undying,
Satisfy me with all I seek,
My deepest need in Christ supplying.

Cast me, Lord, your single net,
Use me for a soul’s salvation;
Honor my tears and blood and sweat,
To build on Christ’s secure foundation.

For every mood, for every need

For every mood, for every need,
You give us, Lord, a prayer to speak:
A prayer in failure, to soon succeed,
A prayer for strength when feeling weak. Continue reading

My God, supply my every need,
Hear now my plea, come down and hear;
The heart is weak, knees knock in fear—
Let me upon your courage feed. Continue reading
